Abstract

Unrestrained pesticide usage has a negative impact on the ecosystem and also harms the health of other organisms, threatening biodiversity. The organophosphates and organochlorine cause convulsions, irritability and tumours which compel us to remove them from the ecosystem for the sustainability of life. The process of cleaning up pesticide-polluted regions is difficult and requires innovative eco-friendly strategies i.e. bioremediation, bio-stimulation and natural attenuation. Bioremediation is the method that biologically degrades the organic wastes under controlled conditions to the levels of less concentration of organic materials. The current study intends to investigate effective and environmentally acceptable ways for removing pesticide contamination and residues from our ecosystem, with a particular emphasis on bioremediation processes including bacteria, fungus, and other forms of life.
